Abstract: Multiferroic (BaTiO3-BiFeO3) × 15 multilayer heterostructures show high magnetoelectric (ME) coefficients αME up to 24 V/cm·Oe at 300 K. This value is much higher than that of a single-phase BiFeO3 reference film (αME = 4.2 V/cm·Oe). We found clear correlation of ME coefficients with increasing oxygen partial pressure during growth. ME coupling is highest for lower density of oxygen vacancy-related defects. Detailed scanning transmission electron microscopy and selected area electron diffraction microstructural investigations at 300 K revealed antiphase rotations of the oxygen octahedra in the BaTiO3 single layers, which are an additional correlated defect structure of the multilayers.
